Glossary Magazine Layout / Term


The color design shorthand for the color schema of cyan, magenta, yellow and black. CMYK is typically used as the basis of “four-color” or “full-color” print jobs. Tiny dots comprised of these four colors are combined in many different combinations to produce a large range of other colors. CYMK is the print world’s (original) version of the RGB color schema (red, green, and blue) for digital colors.
